Your Destinations

Malta

A small archipelago located just under Sicily and above the North African coast, Malta combines temples and ruins from across 7000 years of history with a diverse landscape, prime snorkelling opportunities, and simply stunning beaches. Across the Maltese islands, visitors will find three UNESCO World Heritage Listed sites. The most of famous of these is certainly the capital city of Valletta, the southernmost capital of Europe and a fascinating, fortified holiday destination.

 

Today, Valletta retains its timeless appeal and is steeped in culture, surrounded by mesmerising artwork, traditional churches and majestic palaces. The best way to get around the small city is by foot, and visitors will not be disappointed by the array of activities, tours, and inviting restaurants on offer.

 

For guests looking to break away from the day-to-day hustle and bustle of life, a trip to Malta's sparkling coastline is highly recommended. Charming, relaxed and boasting over 300 days of sunshine per year, the island's beaches range from golden sand to rocky lagoons, while all promise warm waters and gorgeous scenery.

Valletta

Discover the extraordinary capital city of Malta, steeped in culture and rich, maritime history. Often referred to as an Open-Air Museum, Valletta's lattice of narrow streets is a veritable patchwork, proof of the incredible story of a Mediterranean island nation and its cultural significance spanning millennia. 

 

The Fortress City, perched on a peninsula with a stunning outlook over natural Mediterranean harbours, was founded in 1566 and is now heralded as a phenomenal example of Late Renaissance architecture. Within its walls, Valletta tells a story of the many past occupiers and rulers of this curious island at the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. Boasting an incredible 320 monuments of great historical significance, this city portrays an impressive narrative with its 16th Century buildings, Baroque churches and European artistic masterpieces, lavish palaces, fountains, and parapets.

 

Tourist favourites include the spectacular St John's Co-Cathedral, home to priceless works of art, sensational wall carvings, and a painted vaulted ceiling; the building itself is a magnificent example of High Baroque European architecture. The tranquil Upper and Lower Barrakka Gardens boast remarkable sunset views over the Grand Harbour and a neoclassical temple nestled in a peaceful oasis. 

 

The best way to explore the city and make the most of your stay is by foot, providing a wonderful excuse to stop and refuel at your choice from the many boutique cafés and restaurants serving delicious Mediterranean cuisine and Maltese delicacies.

 

With its Mediterranean climate, Malta welcomes tourists year-round. Make the most of island advantages by exploring the coastline or taking a boat trip. Whether visitors have an appetite for history and art or a yearning for simply slow island living, Malta is a top destination and truly offers something for everyone.
